Frankenstein, also called The Frankenstein Monster, or simply The Monster, is a tall undead man created by Dr, Victor Frankenstein using the body parts and internal organs of corpses and given life by means of the darkest and most blasphemous art of science. The monster serves as a terrible reminder that Man should not attempt to play God.
Dr, Victor Frankenstein believed that electricity could be used as a power source to bring the dead back to life. He harnessed powers meant only for God and conducted a series of experiments on stolen corpses. When a bolt of lightning brings his monster to life in the lab, Frankenstein is immediately sorry. He intended his creation to be beautiful, but it was revolting. Horrified, Dr. Frankenstein runs away from his awful creation. Later, while sleeping in his holiday cot, Dr. Frankenstein awakes to see the ghastly monster standing at his bedside. Once again, he flees his creation. After Dr. Frankenstein's brother is murdered, the monster admits to killing him as a way to strike back at his "father" for rejecting him. Dr. Frankenstein begins work on a female creature, but his conscience and dislike for his creation forces him to destroy her and dump her lifeless body in a lake. As revenge, the furious monster murders Dr. Frankenstein's bride on their wedding night. Dr. Frankenstein spent the rest of his life pursuing the monster to take revenge for the death of his bride. He tracks the creature to the icy Arctic and chases him on a dogsled, but the ice between them separates in a huge crack and Dr. Victor Frankenstein falls in to his death. The monster weeps over the corpse of his creator and then heads off across the ice to die alone and in peace.
Frankenstein vs. Baragon
In the 1940's, Japanese scientists recovered the immortal heart of Frankenstein's monster and brought it to a lab in Hiroshima. When the atom bomb was dropped, the heart was seemingly destroyed. Years later, a feral caucasian boy with a flat head was discovered wandering the Japanese countryside. Scientists hypothesized that the "boy" was in fact Frankenstein's monster, regenerated from the irradiated heart. The boy grew to several stories in height and tried to stay out of the sight of humanity. When livestock began to disappear all across Japan, many people blamed Frankenstein for the attacks. In reality, it was caused by a monster called Baragon. In order to prove his innocence, Frankenstein battled Baragon, defeating him after a difficult fight. As Frankenstein raised the defeated Baragon triumphantly over his head, both monsters fell into a volcanic fissure that suddenly opened under them.
The exact appearance of the monster has differed between numerous mediums. The most common representation of the monster is a tall, muscular figure with a somewhat flat-looking head, green skin, sunken eyes and bolts sticking out of its head or neck. It also wears ragged clothes and has surgical scars all over its body. In Frankenstein vs. Baragon, the monster is depicted as a giant human with ragged clothes and the trademark flat head.
Although technically undead, Frankenstein's monster is not a zombie, mummy, vampire or ghoul. Since it is constructed out of pieces from different corpses, the most accurate term to describe him/it would be 'flesh golem'. Since it was brought to life via a form of alchemy, the monster could also qualify as a Homunculus.
